Embark on an iconic journey from the golden age of cruising as you cross the Atlantic Ocean aboard one of the world’s finest cruise ships.
A Transatlantic cruise is still one of the most luxurious ways to make the journey between Europe and the Americas, with Southampton to New York still being an incredibly popular sailing route. It was embarked upon by grand ocean liners of yesteryear and today, Queen Mary 2 follows in their footsteps as the only ocean liner in the world to still offer this iconic crossing on a regular basis.
Although Queen Mary 2 is the only vessel to offer the crossing as a regular service, there are other cruise ships that make the journey from west to east and vice versa, but they are usually part of a repositioning cruise or longer voyage, such as a Caribbean or Canada and New England roundtrip from Southampton.
The majority of transatlantic crossings for repositioning cruises depart from various different ports (for example a ship based in the Mediterranean in the summer may re-locate to the Caribbean for the winter season) and offer minimal ports of call, if any, allowing you to simply sit back and enjoy your chosen ship.
Cruise ships that cross the Atlantic as part of a longer voyage will often make one stop between leaving the UK and reaching the west – Madeira is the most popular, followed by the Azores.
Transatlantic Cruises with Cunard
Sailing into New York City aboard a grand ocean liner is still said to be the best way to arrive in America and we would certainly have to agree. This iconic Cunard crossing is offered several times a year in both directions aboard Queen Mary 2, with some of the crossings also offering Hamburg, Germany as an embarkation and disembarkation port.
Cunard’s Transatlantic crossings are offered in the form of various itineraries with the most popular being the regular service between Southampton and New York City. However, Cunard also offer Southampton roundtrip, which briefly calls into New York before returning to Southampton; U.S. east coast itineraries with ports including, Boston, Maine, New England and Halifax; Caribbean Transatlantic voyages; and world cruise sectors.
There is no shortage of options available if you wishing to experience an iconic transatlantic cruise and of course, if time allows, you could even sail to New York City, spend several weeks in the U.S. and then re-join Queen Mary 2 for the voyage back to the U.K. – the options available are endless.
Queen Mary 2 also offers a kennel service on her Transatlantic crossings between Hamburg, Southampton and New York City. So if you have a beloved dog or cat, then you can take them with you! Please speak with one of our Cruise Experts for more information on this service.
